Chard Farm Central Otago Riesling 2009 12.5%
Distinctive lime, lemon and green apple bouquet with some white rose highlights; a crisp, clean aromatic profile.
Palate reflects the nose and also highlights a schist-like mineral under-currant to the citrus and tree fruit flavors; high acid with a dry finish masking a little residual sugar.
Overall a very nice wine with a developing, slightly toasty appeal - 2 to 3 years solid drinking or cellaring ahead. Balanced, medium+ length Medium- complexity
